It is now official: Another falsified Watchtower prophecy

    "Jesus was obviously speaking about those who were old enough to witness with understanding what took place when the 'last days' began. ... Even if we presume that youngsters 15 years of age would be perceptive enough to realize the import of what happened in 1914, it would still make the youngest of 'this generation' nearly 70 years old today." Awake! 1968 Oct 8 p.13

    My friends, effective May 12, 2016, this WT prophecy is officially false.

    Susannah Mushatt Jones passed away on May 12th. She was the last living person that was born before July 28, 1899, exactly 15 years before the beginning of WWI on July 28, 1914.

    Nice find.

    Some more will follow as the age requirement to be included in the 1914 generation was lowered a couple of times afaik.

  • ILoveTTATT2
    Yes... I believe they lowered it to "10 years or less", then "5 years or less", then "born in 1914".

    I have studied the average maximum lifespan of the verified oldest people and it increases about 1 year every decade, so we will have to wait 6 years for the next, 12 years for the next, and 17 or so more years until the "born in 1914" people all pass away.

    Did  wt not also declare these old prophecies to be intrinsically false when they introduced the "anointed" and then the underlapping overlapping groups anointed generation? without waiting for the supercentenarians to actually appear in the obituaries, thereby sealing the false! label, as pointed out in ILoveTTATT2's  OP?

    Not to mention that they baptize children much younger. My own father was baptized at the age of 12, and that was in the 1940s.

    They have contradicted themselves so many times over the past 100 years, it's enough to make your head swim trying to keep track!

    That Awake article was published during the 1975 fervor.

    After Armageddon failed to arrive on schedule, I think they dropped it from 15 to 10 years of age to buy themselves a few more years.

    When that didn't work, it became anyone born before or during 1914.

    Now it's anointed whose lives overlap with anointed who were alive in 1914 or some such thing that no one understands.

    1914 in itself was the most fraudulent doctrine that the WTS. publishing house created and held onto for over 100 years, and used that year as a base from all other preceding end times doctrines .

    The WTS/JWS were not faithfully loyal and obedient to God or Jesus in that Jesus admonished his true faithful followers to not make a time on god's own sacred time, as mentioned in scripture.

    The generation teaching ultimately was a tool to fear monger the sheeples into compliance.

    There are only 51 people that fit the "10 years or older" case as of today.

    Whomever is a part of the "generation" has to see everything occur, not just some of it.

    From my perspective, none of those folks are a part of the "generation" spoken of. And 1914 is plain silly, invisible presence .... pffft!
